Live #1 – Practice Session: Media in Drupal 8

Welcome to the first and hopefully many more live streams. In this video, I’ll practice a presentation which I gave remotely to the Drupal Sydney User Group.

I start the presentation by talking about media handling in Drupal 7 and then what’s new in Drupal 8. Then I demonstrate how to create media management functionality by using Entity EmbedEntity Browser and Video Embed Field.

If you prefer text, then you can read our tutorial on “Managing Media Assets using Core Media in Drupal 8“.
